I wouldn't be surprised if ZSJ did show up in ROH at some point. His style and work ethic is perfect for the company.

Why would they need ZSJ when they can book super talented guys like Kenny Omega and Chase Owens?!

Just a few little thoughts from last night's NOAH show:

Sabre/Ogawa was pretty fucking awesome as both men put on a clinic with a bunch of cool submission moments, knowing Zack is on the way out and how much respect these two have for each other, it's boarderline sweet and heart warming to see these two go at it. Really cool stuff.

The Ohara/Kenoh interactions in their tag match were AMAZING, two incredible talents beating the holy shit out of each other, there's the heart and fire missing from NOAH most of the year, after seeing this preview, I am pretty confident their 12.23 bout will be a must-see. Kenoh/Ohara & Harada/Kotoge is like having two KENTA/Marufujis in the one generation. 4 top-teir junior heavyweights. (Kenohpleasecomebackmichipro)

Go Shiozaki was pretty over, with a few boos at times but they didn't last long. I mean, I couldn't sit there booing him ALL match! The match was good, Kitamiya looked like gold and did an incredible deeeeep dead-lift recovery on a unbalanced suplex. I started going to Japan just after Shiozaki left NOAH, so it was very weird seeing him at a NOAH show, let-alone live. I love Shiozaki as a wrestler, but he broke my heart all those years ago and now that he has come crawling back, devoid of any loyalty, it's a tough pill to swallow. Especially as NOAH gave him the absolute world when he was their Ace, hell, he beat Tanahashi & Nakamura in singles matches within six weeks of each other. Now THAT'S getting given the world on a plate and he left! Now I hate him again!

The two Suzukigun tag matches were the same thing you've seen on every single show, all year and literally served as a piss/merch/talk to Haruka Eigen break.

What's our opinion on eyebrows? Future superstar or future legend? (Not like Melissa)

Very mixed opinion of Destiny, borderline meh for me. For one alot of it are rematches. If you look at all the 4 title matches, the challengers have all at one point or another challenged and fail this year. Of course the NOAH roster is paper thin and half of it are aging stars so it's not like they have credible possibilities but still..... Second, the absolute emasculation of the NOAH roster throughout this entire feud. Getting troll by Taichi, TAKA and Despy once, shame on you. Trolled the 2nd time, shame on me, trolled 54353789 times..... just urghh. You'd think they smarten up.

The only thing I could wish for are the matches that should deliver would deliver to curb my malaise of this feud. Shelton vs Nakajima should be good (another rematch) and irrationally looking forward to MAYBACH vs Shiozaki. I think they could mesh well unless MAYBACH starts going into his shtick.

I for one am really excited for this show! I'm wondering if it's possible to avoid spoilers, until it airs on the 28th. Btw. It's strange that this is supposedly their big show of the year, and it's not airing live.

On one hand, holy shit that's pretty cool.
On the other, Suzukigun isn't gonna save us from the Bullshit Club any time soon.

Marufuji also looked wary of GO despite the save

Can't wait for Suzuki-gun to win all their titles back at the next big show in true Jado fashion.

Wonder how this will effect his team with Masato Tanaka.
